I obtained my Ph.D. from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. During my doctorate I was affiliated with the Applied Cryptography Group and the Privacy Preserving Systems Lab , and I was advised by Prof. Kenny Paterson, and co-advised by Dr. Anwar Hithnawi. In winter 2019, I was a visiting graduate researcher at the NetSys lab at UC Berkeley under Prof. Sylvia Ratnasamy. Over the summer in 2021, I interned at Brave as a researcher. Before my doctorate, I graduated from ETH Zurich in 2017 with a Master of Science in Computer Science. Prior, I did my B.Sc. studies at ETH Zurich.
My research focus has been on building systems that use cryptography to give users more control on how their data is shared and processed. Selected recent work includes: (i) TimeCrypt, a time-series storage that enables efficient confidential query processing coupled with user-enforceable data sharing, (ii) Zeph, a system that enforces a user’s privacy preferences in streaming data applications.
